I take it that you have a hard top?

Added Sea Foam to a tank of gas and drove her around town a bit, then took her on the highway. No major acceleration difference with the little 4-banger, but I put it in 5th and was able to hold speed! Major accomplishment. I was even able to accelerate somewhat in 5th gear, that was unheard of before!
I will give it a few tanks of gas, just to make sure the Sea Foam itself isn't adding to the hp, but I am definitely impressed!
what is Sea Foam? i've heard of people using it but haven't seen it on the west coast.

If your injectors are dirty - dump a can into your gas tank and you will notice a differance in performance before you reach the end of your driveway!

There's the right wheelbase for every obstacle and the right obstacle for every wheelbase.
